          A fantastic place to stay - quiet, beautiful, great location

          Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.

          surreal week of my father and brother unexpectedly showing up and staying on
          the farm, they facilitated my rebirth in a small stream in the virgin
          rainforest. Once again, I arrived naked into this world. On October 7th, a new
          life had now begun.

          With my internship period nearly up, my
          mind began to wander and fantasize. What will I do with the knowledge and
          experience I’ve gained? Go back to ...

          ... home hidden in behind them. It feels like a very natural and isolated place. There are a quite a few people here, and a lot of American ex-pats too, mostly just surfing or learning to surf.

          From all accounts Santa Teresa beach always has good surf and every time that we went to the beach this definitely seemed to be the case. We didn't do as much swimming as we first thought we would, as it was quite rocky (especially at low tide). We did find some ...

          ... from Janessa as Red Frog Villas hadn’t any opening for the next couple days. After breakfast I decided to use my rented bicycle for the few hours I had remaining before I had to return it. I headed to the other part of Santa Teresa which I hadn’t seen yet and went to check out the different parts of the beach. After returning my bike around 1:00pm I bought a smoothie and decided to eat at Pasta Basta. This restaurant had a wide variety of food but it was at this ...
